UK to require compulsory porn filters for any subscriber that has children

UK will require ISPs to implement compulsory filters for households with kids

David Cameron is fighting for the children, or at least he claims to be. ISPs will now be required to implement a compulsory survey when setting up an internet connection. During the survey, they will be required to say whether there are kids in the house, and if the answer is 'yes,' they will be required to set up filters.

Starting February 2013, ISPs will be required to show the government their plans for implementation. Cameron says that "a silent attack on innocence is underway in our country today, and I am determined that we fight it with all we've got." Others argue that it is the parent's responsibility to keep the children safe, an argument that seems to be stronger in the United States.

 

What are your thoughts on this? Think every country should require it from their ISPs?
